I have been a fan of Evergrey for a long time and finally, I got a chance to photograph them.

I don’t remember exactly how I found Evergrey. It was most likely in the early 2000s. I do believe that the track “Nosferatu” from the album “Solitude, Dominance & Tragedy” was one of the first I heard.

I do however remember buying the album ” The Inner Circle’ and playing it very loud in my car while driving home.

I saw them perform live for the first time at a venue called Kåren in Göteborg, Sweden. I want to say that they were opening for Motörhead that evening but I can not find any information to prove that online. Perhaps somebody out there can confirm or deny this vague memory?

At that time I did not have a camera or did not even think it was a possibility to photograph a band while they were performing!?

When I went to see Evergrey this time they had just released the excellent album “The Atlantic”. All the single releases leading up to the album were great. They were now performing in their hometown of Göteborg, Sweden.

This was going to be a good night!

Their musicianship and live performance were absolutely top-notch and the music and sound were fantastic.
